JKU Algorithms Help Machine to Detect People in Distress

These days, an increasing number of the elderly wish to live independently at home for as long as possible and quite often, many older people tend to live alone. In cases of acute health emergencies, too much time can pass before a relative or neighbor notices that something could be wrong. A new domestic robot is being developed at the JKU that is able to detect emergency situations and subsequently alert authorities or emergency responders.
